I wrote a post for this blog about a year ago about romantic id badge lanyards and how much I enjoy creating them.  In that post I shared with you my newest feminine lanyard creations.  Valentine's Day is Almost Here As Valentine's Day approaches once again my thoughts turned to feminine romantic jewelry and how I could bring that into our daily work world with beautiful lanyards.  I think I get the most enjoyment when creating something feminine, with flowers, filigree and pretty beads.   I just listed my newest collection of these beauties.

Autumn Splendor in Gold Here in Colorado the aspen trees are beginning to turn to golden yellow.  It won't be many more weeks and entire mountainsides will glow with rustling golden leaves.  It is one of my favorite things about Colorado. No matter how glorious nature is, most of us still need to go to work each day and complete those daily activities so needed for all of us to thrive.  Many of you need to wear an id badge.   Why not go for the gold when you wear your badge reel?  I added five new autumn designs in...
